    Worried about the temperature in my terrarium

    I just set up some grow lights for my indoor terrarium and I'm a little worried. I placed a thermometer inside and it says it's about 95 degrees inside the terrarium. I have a Heliamphora Minor arriving later on Wednesday and I'm wondering if it'll be okay inside the terrarium.

    Probably not at 95. What are you planning to do to cool it during the day, or night cooling for that matter?

    95 sounds very steep to me.

    Why do you keep your plants in a terrarium?

    Can you add a CPU fan or two. I have two "wardian cases" that i grow orchids and my Heli and Cephs in. Both have CPU fans that run during the day and just sporadic at night. They both have a single CFL. There have been a few times the fans die and i have to close the blinds to keep the sun out... or they get hot fast. The cases aren't air tight either so i would think a standard sealed tank might heat up faster.

    The heli seems to like it just fine and grows and flowers.

    Also if you are wanted to have a nice cooling setup, I'm currently working on one with an a/c. See my thread on the OCPS webpage here:
